2016 West Virginia Code
CHAPTER 44. ADMINISTRATION OF ESTATES AND TRUSTS
ARTICLE 1. PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVES.
§44-1-7. Penalty of bond.
Every bond of an executor or administrator shall be in a penalty equal, at the least, to the full value of the personal estate of the deceased to be administered; and where there is a will which authorizes the executor or administrator to sell real estate, or receive the rents and profits thereof, the bond shall be in a penalty equal, at the least, to the full value both of such personal estate and of such real estate, or of such personal estate and of such rents and profits, as the case may be. If on the filing of the inventory or appraisement of the estate it shall appear that the penalty of the bond does not comply as to amount with the foregoing requirements, the court in which, or the clerk before whom, such bond was given, shall immediately notify such executor or administrator of such fact and require of him a new or additional bond, and the failure of such executor or administrator to give the same within a reasonable time shall be sufficient cause for his removal.
